Next Terror eMail Could Come from IIM-A


IIM-A and many alike institutes are operating Wi-Fi network on campus. Crime branch officials from Ahemdabad have found as many as five unsecured Internet connections in Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) and two in Gujarat University. It's been noted that, many other institutes in the city have unsecured wireless internet services which can be easily used by the terrorists or anyone else for sending threatening emails.

Wireless internet connections named Linksys, Devdhar, Pronet, AK Jain, Gandhi have been found at IIM-A, and the main intranet used in the campus named WLAN unsecured. Unsecured here means where no strict firewalls are defined and where one can hack into the system with a software available on internet. It's dangerous as in such institutions, it becomes difficult to check every connection.

Similarly, Gujarat University also has such unsecured connections. There was a connection titled WA00131 that had more than two nodes available for use. The connection is used by faculty members and in residential campus.

Terror organisations know well that educational institutes are biggest user groups for internet connection. There are many WiFi campuses in Gujarat alone. However, terrorists now identified as Peerbhoy and Shaikh cleverly used Khalsa College connection in Mumbai. They also took care of deleting history from administrator log, making it difficult for cyber officials to get digital footprints. It can happen in Ahmedabad too.

City crime branch has urged citizens to secure their wireless connections with advanced software and firewalls. "Most routers have security features but by default they are not activated," said cyber crime experts.
